Department of Medicine

Assistant Professor of Medicine

Specialty/Research Focus

Cardiology; Cardiovascular Disease

Professional Summary:

I am a cardiologist with more than 30 years’ experience. The primary focus of my patient care is the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of coronary artery disease, arrhythmias, valvular heart disease, lipid abnormalities, heart failure and hypertension. My goal is to improve my patients’ quality of life.

The UBMD cardiology practice allows me to provide my patients the full spectrum of cardiovascular services representing state-of-the-art therapy. In addition, I am able to take advantage of a wide range of clinical research studies conducted within UBMD Cardiology, which may prove to be unique options for my patients. Having these complete services and research studies available to me allows my patients to receive a level of care unparalleled in our community.

I am intimately involved in educating the next generation of physicians through my teaching of medical students, residents and fellows. In 2015, the family medicine residents at Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital recognized my commitment to medical education with an award for my specialty teaching.
